Ash Wednesday

‹ back to previous page

Date(s) - 17 Feb 2021 until 28 Feb 2021
10:30 AM - 10:30 AM

We begin the Season of Lent with our observance of Ash Wednesday as a day of fast and abstinence on 17 February 2021.

A number of Lenten Packs will be available for collection in the Church on Ash Wednesday.  Each pack contains a Lenten prayer, a Trócaire box and an envelope with blessed ashes.

Please take one, if you can.  Collect one for a friend who may not be able to get out.

As we cannot have the usual distribution of ashes with Mass in the Church, you may use the ashes from your Lenten Pack, for each other at home or indeed for yourself.  You may say these words when applying ashes to the forehead: “Repent and be faithful to the Gospel”.
